After installing new hard drive and the os. All went well except the hard drive is not recognizing the ethernet or video card. Discovered while trying to make a network connection. Neither show in device manager. I was going to remove and reinstall the cards but that is a problem also. I have a Dell Optiplex 745. Running XP pro. The cards appear to be built into the motherboard. What can I do to fix this ? Thank you

Get the service tag number off of the computer and enter it here.




If you do not have the service tag number, you can try this link.




Here are the specs for your computer:




I am not sure if you have an add-on video card or you are using the intergrated video chip on the motherboard. If you have the graphics chip on the motherboard, I believe that this is your driver but you should confirm this.
